Hey everyone, TGIF! Today we’re taking a quick look at the last piece from the Chanel Superstition Collection I have, Khaki Bronze Le Volume de Chanel, as well as going through my collection recommendations!
Chanel Le Volume is an old buddy of mine. Quite a while ago I tried Bleu and Prune (both permanent). As part of the Supersition Collection, Khaki Bronze (40. RRP in Belgium: 30,50 euros) is limited edition. Like Bleu and Prune, the grayed-out khaki of Khaki Bronze is not immediately visible on the eyes. However, the softer effect plays with the eye color and eyeshadows, which I’m sure some would really enjoy!
You see Khaki Bronze swatched on the right here:
Here is how it looks on my lashes. Clockwise from upper left: bare lashes, one coat of Khaki Bronze on upper lashes, two coats of Khaki Bronze on upper lashes and one coat on the bottom.
As you can see, the formula lengthens and volumizes well. However, it also seems to be on the wetter side (like Prune. I never had this problem with Bleu), so my lashes don’t separate as well. I’m not sure if it’s because I haven’t used it enough times for it to dry out a little and become optimal though. Also, do note that mascara preferences are incredibly personal. Many people I know swear by Le Volume!
This is how Khaki Bronze looks from a normal viewing distance:
(You have seen these looks here.)
If you like the formula of Chanel Le Volume and have a thing for khaki, don’t miss out on Khaki Bronze!
After seeing all these pieces from Chanel Superstition, what are you the most interested in? I would personally recommend the cream blushes (both Affinité and Présage have become my go-tos), Mysterious Le Vernis (vampy and chic), as well as Rendez-vous Rouge Coco Shine and Mystique Rouge Coco. The lip shades might not seen revolutionary, but they’re pretty ones you can wear every day, and I always end up bonding well with those.
Did you pick anything up from Chanel Superstition Collection? I’m already getting excited about the holiday collection!
